HOTELS in Sydney: important note!

It is currently difficult to book a reasonably priced accommodation in Wollongong on the 23rd and 24th September. This happens because of the concurrent Elton John concert on the same weekend. It is recommended to book an accommodation in Sydney if it is not possible to find a reasonable accommodation in Wollongong.

In order to support the attendees of the Geant4 User Workshop and Collaboration meeting, a special rate of AUD$189 has been fixed with the Inn Holiday, at the Sydney Airport. The Inn Holiday is conveniently located close to the Mascot railway station. There are good train connections to go either to Wollongong or in the City.
